Puros Indios Pyramide #2 Maduro Cigar

Score: 7.8

By Hayward Tenney

The Puros Indios Pyramide #2 Maduro is impressive to behold; one of these cigars you’re tempted to smoke publicly, just because. While listed as a 6½” x 50 ring, I measured it more like a 56 ring at the foot. Regardless, its mass makes for a hell of a first impression.

It’s well rolled with slightly visible seams and a spongy spring that’s not too soft. There are a couple moderate veins in the wrapper, which has an oily sheen and chocolaty hue. I initially went with V cut, but about halfway through ended up making a flat cut to draw more smoke (the ability to control smoke volume being a nice feature of pyramids, IMO).

On lighting, I detected base flavors of mild pepper with some woody notes. These notes of wood strengthen somewhat, but the cigar actually maintained a consistent, if relatively uneventful, medium-bodied presence. Hints of aged leather accented the aroma, and the cigar produced a strong, brindled gray ash that I tapped off regularly in 1″ nuggets. The finish was short with just a tang of sweetness.

I laid it to rest with slightly less than 2” remaining. As it doesn’t require too much attention and burns evenly for over an hour, I would recommend it with a few cold ones. It’s a good, long smoke that neither over- or underwhelms, and for this flavor profile, would sit well alongside a pilsner or amber ale.

Final Score: 7.8
